Leonard Elphinston Brunel Homan

From the Norwood News – Friday 30 September 1938

MR. L. E. B. HOMAN
Formerly a Keen Racing Man

Mr. Leonard Elphinstone Brunel Homan, a fellow director of Sir Abe Bailey in many South African mining companies, died on Wednesday at The Canons, Mitcham. Formerly a keen racing man, Mr. Homan was for many years judge of the Johannesburg Turf Club and raced in the Rand on an expensive scale.

He was a close friend of the late Sir Harry Mallaby Deeley, and a near neighbour.

He had taken little interest in Mitcham affairs, but at one time was associated with the old Mitcham Wanderers Athletic Club, of which he was president for a period. He was a fine figure of a man, standing over six feet. The funeral takes place to-day (Friday) at the Mitcham New Cemetery.
